Trouble brewing for British cuppa as climate change threatens tea production

Climate change is putting the much-loved British cuppa at risk as extreme weather and rising temperatures hit tea-growing countries, a report warns.

The UK and Ireland drink more tea per person than any other countries in the world, with Kenya alone producing half the black tea drunk in the UK.

But a report from Christian Aid warns that Kenya, the world’s biggest exporter of black tea, faces more erratic rainfall, making floods and droughts more common, and rising temperatures.

The new sixty metre pontoon for tourist boats has arrived in Poros and is being situated in the old port area, between the Port Police office and Maistrali bar. Should be ready for/during the summer season.

Pet law put to public consultation

New legislation on pet ownership and the rights of stray animals that has been put to public consultation seeks to make animal abuse a felony and to introduce a more comprehensive supervisory framework.

According to the draft law presented by the Interior Ministry, representatives from the Union of Municipalities and Communities (KEDE), the Greek Ombudsman and selected animal rights organizations will be responsible for ensuring that the new laws are upheld.

River Thames: Rescuers try to save stranded whale for second time

Rescuers are attempting to catch a whale stranded in the River Thames in south west London for the second time.

RNLI teams managed to save the whale but it escaped an inflatable cushion that was guiding it while it was being towed to safety at 01:00 BST.

It was later found at about 10:00 a few miles along the river in Teddington but has now headed back towards Richmond.

It is believed the whale may have some injuries.
